HGH is a well-known hormone in the medical community. It has been used to treat many medical conditions since scientists began synthetically producing it in 1985. According to WebMD, the hormone has been approved by the FDA for treatment of the following conditions:

  • HGH deficiency
  • Small for gestational age
  • Chronic kidney insufficiency
  • Prader-Willi Syndrome
  • Turner’s syndrome
  • Short bowel syndrome
  • Pituitary-disfunction-related HGH deficiency
  • Muscle-wasting disease connected to HIV and AIDS

When individuals with these conditions begin taking the hormone, they often experience an increased capacity for exercise, greater bone density, increased muscle mass, and decreased amount of body fat. However, these patients had a deficiency that needed to be filled. Despite many claims from HGH manufacturers and marketers, the hormone has not been proven to work for anything other than growth-related conditions.
